Q: Do I have to attend the inspection?

Answer: No, it is not required that you attend the inspection. However, there are many benefits to attending the inspection. You will have the opportunity to ask questions. And attending the inspection will provide you insight on the home’s current condition and also the maintenance requirements for the home.

Q: Can a home “fail” an inspection?

Answer: A home does not “pass” or “fail” an inspection. A home inspector is an unbiased and objective person who is trained and experienced to detect issues in a home. The inspection report will inform you of defects and damages that were found. You should be fully informed of the condition of the home so that you can make a good, well-informed buying decision. You can then decide to continue with your home purchase, negotiate repairs with the seller, and/or request an adjustment in the selling price.

Q: Have I wasted my money if the home inspection doesn’t uncover any issues?

Answer: Not at all! A home inspection is the only way for you to know for sure what issues are present in the home. If by chance yours is one of the few homes where the inspection does not uncover any issues then you can feel confident in the peace of mind you have bought in knowing you are making a sound investment. In addition you will have been informed by the inspector of how to maintain your new home to preserve its value and reduce your expenses..
